Nope it's the same, and it will stay the same becouse I rigged and vertex weighted both versions (Mona Hideout and Mona Outdoor) for the male skeleton so while playing the Mona levels you will have the same features as Max, new Mona models would mean rigging and vertex weighting them on the male skeleton too and this is a big worthless delay for the mod release. :P

The 3d model is exactly the same, this simply means that her model can now play male anims, so all the new anims that I made for Max can be used while controlling Mona, the result is that in Mona's levels you will shootdodge/roll/takedown etc just like Max could, without this trick you would either have none of the new features or I would have to redo every single new anim one more time for the female skeleton. :P

I've used this trick in my Payne Effects 3 mod and it works perfectly. ;)

So Mona will just be a retexture of the James McCaffery model rather than Mona?

What!? LOL I hope you are misunderstanding on purpose... :P Anyway nope, you've understood the opposite of what I meant, actually you will notice nothing different on Mona's model, it will be just like if I never said anything, you load a level with her and you will play with her character exactly as it looks in the original game. ;)
The point of my last 3 huge posts is essentially what ALT_OhDude summarized in one sentence. :P

Right. Sorry. "The 3d model is exactly the same" kinda
sounds like it, though.

No, she will look exactly like before, but will now be able to use male player animations.

I'm surprised at the things you were able to do with the Original Engine, and how you were able to get a functioning bullet time system and gun handling system like that of Max Payne 3. I like the little things in the mod, like how you can drink bottles of Kong Scotch and have that 'drunk' effect. Also how Max has periodical flashbacks in certain situations. The "Dead man Walking" feels just like Arcade mode in MP3, and that you took bits from other mods you made like Payne Effects 3 and Max Payne…
